Bikham Academia’s mission is to improve lives through learning. We enable anyone to enroll in these educational courses to learn (students). We need rules to keep our platform and services safe for you, us and our student and instructor community. These terms apply to all your activities on the Bikham website, and other related services (“Services”).
By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to resolve disputes with Bikham Academia through binding arbitration (with very limited exceptions, not in court), and you waive certain rights to participate in class actions, as detailed.
1. Course Enrollment and Usage When you enroll in a course, you get the course material from us to use. Don’t try to reproduce or resell course material in any way.
As a student, when you enroll in a course, you are getting from Bikham Academia a license to view the course via the Bikham Academia platform and Bikham Academia is the licensor of record. Courses are licensed, and not sold, to you.
In legal, more complete terms, Bikham Academia grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the course material and its associated content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non- commercial, educational purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with a particular courses or feature of our Services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. You may not redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any course material unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Bikham Academia authorized representative.
However, we reserve the right to ask back any part of the course material at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a course due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the course you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine its content violates our Trust & Safety Guidelines. An instructor may decide at any time to no longer provide teaching assistance or Q&A services in association with a course.
Instructors may not grant course material to students directly and any such direct license shall be null and void and a violation of these Terms.
2. Payments, Credits, and Refunds When you make a payment, you agree to use a valid payment method. If you aren’t happy with your course, Bikham Academia offers a refund for most course purchases after 10 days of enrollment and before the start of the course.
When you make a purchase, you agree not to use an invalid or unauthorized payment method. If your payment method fails and you still need the course material, you agree to pay us the corresponding fees within seven days of notification from us. We reserve the right to void any enrollment for which we have not received adequate payments.
2.2 Refunds and Credits If the course you enrolled is not what you were expecting, you can request, after 10 days of your enrollment in the course, that Bikham Academia refund your amount or replace the course material. We reserve the right to process a refund or replacement, at our discretion, depending on capabilities of our payment processing partners. No credit or refund is due to you if you request it after you have started off with the course.
To request a refund/replacement, contact the Bikham Academia representative. As detailed in the Instructor Agreement, instructors agree that students have the right to receive these replacements or refunds.
At our discretion, if we believe you are abusing our refund policy, we reserve the right to restrict all future use of the course material. If we deny your access to a course material due to your violation of these Terms or our Trust & Safety Guidelines, you will not be eligible to receive refund or any replacement.

We may terminate or suspend your permission to use our Services at any time, with or without notice, for any violation of these Terms, if you fail to pay any fees when due, upon the request of law enforcement or government agencies, for extended periods of inactivity, for unexpected technical issues or problems, or if we suspect that you engage in fraudulent or illegal activities. Upon any such termination we may prevent you from further access to our course materials.

5. Miscellaneous Legal Terms These terms are like any other contract, and they have boring but important legal terms that protect us from the countless things that could happen and that clarify the legal relationship between us and you.

These Terms (including any agreements and policies linked from these Terms) constitute the entire agreement between you and us.

Even if we are delayed in exercising our rights or fail to exercise a right in one case, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights under these Terms, and we may decide to enforce them in the future. If we decide to waive any of our rights in a particular instance, it doesn’t mean we waive our rights generally or in the future.
5.2 Disclaimer It may happen that our website is down, either for planned maintenance or because something goes down with the site. It may happen that one of our instructors is making misleading statements in their course. It may also happen that we encounter security issues. These are just examples.
